Rebel with a cause!
By RebelOwner(Owner), Sep. 1, 2008
The 2008 Honda Rebel definetly has a cause... it is a well-priced cruiser, that is affordable, good on gas, and looks pretty cool too.

I have owned mine for a number of months and I really don't have any complaints. This is typical Honda build-quality. I guess the only thing I wouldn't mind is a b... Read Full Review

2009 Honda Rebel
By Elm Valle(Owner), Oct. 22, 2008
This is actually for the 2009 Honda Rebel. The 2009 is not yet on the year list for the reviews, so I had to put it under the 2008.



There really is not much difference between the 2008 and 2009 Honda Rebels, except for color availability. The 2008 come in two colors; silver or black. The 2009 R... Read Full Review

This bike is a blast
By Paul(Owner), Mar. 6, 2010
Bought a Rebel for my wife to learn to ride on and now whenever she isn't looking I am out stealing it to go for a ride. I drive a Suzuki Boulevard but there is nothing to compare with the handeling of this little cruiser. I am 5'10", 200lbs and I have no problem getting it up to highway spee... Read Full Review
